Why Fathers' Rights?
The Dadvocates team understands first-hand what it's like for children not to have access to their fathers. We are proud to dedicate our law firm to the protection of fathers' rights because we understand that:
- Children who are the product of divorce or separation have a better quality of life outcome when their fathers are heavily involved in their lives.
- Men have historically faced insurmountable disadvantages in court when a family breaks up.
- The heavy burden placed on men during divorce can feel like a legal punishment for being a good husband, father, and provider.
At The Dadvocates, it is our goal to educate the court about the true facts of your case and to prevent the other party from using sexist stereotypes to win. We strive for the wellbeing of the children involved, and to us, that means as much time with Dad as possible!

Highly Recommended by Previous Clients
My experience working with Kaitlyn Wright has been nothing but phenomenal. During the case she kept me well informed and did an excellent job representing me in court. I would highly recommend the Dadvocates as a father for they know the law well and how to help dads in their hardest of times.
If you want to defend your rights as a father, you've come to the right place. I could not ask for better representation than Kaitlyn Wright and her team. She was nonjudgmental, compassionate, and made everything clear during this difficult process. I have dealt with other lawyers that just go through the motions of the case, but Kaitlyn is truly invested in obtaining the best result for you, which is not always the easiest for a dad in today's system. Highly recommended!!View On Google
